It was Sunday, under the sign of Scorpio (see birth chart on October 26, 1997). The US president was Bill Clinton (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair (Labour), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of October people in US were listening to Candle In The Wind 1997 by Elton John. Cure, directed by Kiyoshi Kurosawa, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1997 while The Angel Of Darkness by Caleb Carr was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Sleepwalkers. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Gloom 3 or Dragon Ball GT: Final Bout Dragon Ball: Final Bout.
